Description: Technical Report
Abstract: The purpose of this report is to present the methodology and show example results from the mobility Tactical Decision Aids (TDAs) that are to the incorporated into the Joint Mapping Tool Kit. These TDAs are the optimum route selector, the Combat Maneuver Model (CMM), the mobility network generator, and the isochrone generator. The optimum route selector chooses a route of a given width between designated map positions and locates choke points along that route. The CMM computes the time for a unit of vehicles in one of four basic combat formations to traverse the selected route. The mobility network generator produces an edge/node network of corridors and categorizes the resultant edges based on the largest military unit that the edge can handle. The isochrone generator predicts the time required for a single vehicle to reach all areas within a speed matrix from an initial location. Application programmer interfaces for all the mobility TDAs are presented in Appendix A.
